red battery light

Hi.  I have a 2006 avensis diesel d4d.  Power went dead and I was told the charger was gone. It started from jump leads ok and ran, though not far. Bought a reconditioned one and had it fitted.  Started and ran great though just noticed the red Battery light is on, even with engine running OK.  Any help will be gratefully received.

A red light usually means the alternator is faulty however I had an intermittent red light with a 2008 Avensis the Battery was charging but eventually the alternator expired. Take it back to garage who fitted it and get it checked as I think it will eventually fail if left in that state.

Red Battery lights there is a fault in the charging circuit, it could be a bad alternator, bad voltage regulator which is inside the alternator or simply a wiring problem..
